My Students

I teach a wonderful group of 21 students who love learning and coming to school every day. My students are always up for a challenge and enjoy the feeling of success when completing a task or an assignment. My students come from various backgrounds and cultures.

School is a special place where they can all come together and work together.

I teach at a C.L.A.S.S. school. We center our day around lifelines and follow the motto “Do the right thing and treat people right. If you do those things, good things will come your way.” Our school and classroom environment play a huge role in their eagerness to learn. Our school is a beautiful campus that has a welcoming environment for all students, parents, teachers, and staff.

My students are happy, motivated, and awesome children who love doing their best on any given task.

My Project

The backdrop and rug that I am asking for will be added to the picnic tables and other decor that I already have to provide the students with a bright and fun area for them to work in small groups. It is an area where they will be able to work with their peers and with an interventionist.

I have learned that my students learn better in an environment that they enjoy.

These materials will really help give them that special space that they deserve. They will give our room a fresh and inviting feel to help keep my students motivated to learn.
